    I can't open the archive, I know you have to use 7zip and I use it, but when I extract the files it just says it can't be opened as an archive. Help please

    Did you download all 3 parts (maybe 4 if there are 4, I don't remember)
    Did you verify the md5sum
    Are you extracting the .001 file.

    [list type=decimal]
    [*]Download all 3 (or 4) parts
    [*]Select ALL of them
    [*]Right-click the selection
    [*]Choose 7zip -> Extract to "*\"
    [/list]

    It should extract them all into one big file.

    selecting the .001 file should be sufficient... that's what I always do.

    I do all that, but it still just says that it can't be opened as an archive, and yes I've verified the MD5 thingy

    So I got part 1, 3 and 4 to open, but I can't open part 2. It looks different fromt he others too it has a firefox symbol on it and doesn't have .002 after its name

    Seriously...

    Download all 4 parts... you should have a .001, .002, .003, and a .004 file.

    Verify the md5sums of all 4 files and compare them with the md5sums I listed in the archive thread.

    Right click on the .001 file and go to 7-zip->Extract to.... or something

    At that point it should extract all 4 files, it's the way it works, like magic.

    You don't "use" anything to open it, it should give you a folder full of folders full of folders/files these files are to be used with SDT.

    And that's what I did, part 2 just doesn't wanna open. Oh well, the only thing from there that I wanted are pokemon hairs, and most of them are on Mineur's page anyway. Thanks for the help and sorry for the stupidity :P

    You only open part 1... also put the .002 after the filename of the second part, it won't work without the proper file extensions.
